Teddy Riley

Singer/Producer The true definition of a super-producer, Teddy Riley (born Edward Riley) has a long list of record productions, but is most famous for his part in the groups Guy and Blackstreet, both of which propelled Riley’s New Jack Swing genre. It is with this style of music that the Harlem-raised talent defined an era and became a seminal figure in future R&B and hip hop. Today, Teddy is heavily involved in the Korean music market, producing and writing for various groups there, while he continues to make magic for artists in the States.
